Environmental & Marine Education Abounds

COA Educators Tony and Julie joined other environmental educators and teachers at the annual conference of the Alliance for NJ Environmental Educators on January 6-8.  Tony and Julie gave presentations to classroom and non-formal educators, showcasing COA’s educational programs.  Tony described how teachers could integrate service projects such as the Beach Sweeps and Storm Drain Stenciling into their classrooms.  Julie’s program focused on the Student Summit and the innovative way that it fosters learning in an outdoor classroom.


About the Student Summit…Applications for the 17th Annual Spring Student Summit are now available at this link, or by calling Julie.  The Summit is a free field trip program for middle school (Grades 5-8) students from central and northern NJ counties (southern NJ counties are invited to the Fall Student Summit, held in October).  The Summit allows students to be “scientists for a day”, making observations, conducting experiments, and drawing conclusions about a variety of marine and environmental science topics.
